I'm gonna tell you a story that's all about
This job I had one time as a talent scout, hmm.
I had a hard day at the office and the boss wasn't in town
The day this hired legged guitar picker just happened to come around.
Well, he walks in my office with a great big grin,
And folks that's where my story really begins.
He said, 'Son my name is Boregard Rippy.
I come to you from Tupelo Mississippi.
I write songs that'll sing like a bird,
I play licks on my guitar like you ain't never heard.
But I'm down on my luck and things are just a little slack.
I gotta quarter in my pocket and a shirt on my back.
But you buy me some supper and give me a place I can sleep
He said 'I'll sing you some songs that'll rock your head to sleep.
I got talent boy. Said back home they call me the Tupelo Mississippi Flash
